Good evening all,

It’s been a while, 12 years I think! But I’m finally going to tackle my car and get it back on the road. He’s in a sorry state with some big jobs ahead but hopefully I can keep the enthusiasm up 🙏🏻
Will post some photos soon and a plan of action, first though I have to sort my garage out so I can actually work in it 😂

Cheers

Dan

drag and drop onto this page https://imgbb.com/

 

then chose dont delete

 

then chose bulletin board full image linked (or something like that)

 

copy and paste code into here (minus the bit of advertising it occasionally throws in to try and catch you out)

Well at least you have made a start! Clearing the garage is important as a good angle grinder and mig welder.

it's all about the little jobs, keep doing something no matter how small or whatever it is, just a little bit here and there

 

it all builds up and you feel like you've done something useful, then every now and then you get carried away and realise you went and did a lot all of a sudden

It will all be worth it when you finish the car, you can't beat a mini for smiles per mile.
